And so 8-year-old Judith Liegeois would return at low tide the following day to the beachside rocks in northern New Zealand, where her family vacationed during the summer months. At the shore, she'd collect driftwood, seashells and kelp, and decorate her "home." The hallway was the passageway in the rocks where the waves crashed. The rooms were the caves.

Wang & Söderström's trio of 3D-printed vases feature mottled patterns and bulbous bases

Copenhagen-based art and design studio Wang & Söderström has used algorithms to form the patterned surfaces of these vases, which are 3D-printed from plaster and set inside lumpy bases. Wang & Söderström produced the limited-edition Excavation series with Unique Board, a New York-based company that teams up with artists and designers to create and sell 3D-printed sculptural objects. The three designs in the collection each comprise two contrasting parts that overlap and slot together. The studio originally created them as art pieces, but decided the shapes made them well-suited for use as vases – the upper volumes holds flowers while the lower parts form the bases. Wang & Söderström employed different materials and techniques to offer varying finishes for the sections. The top part is made of plaster and the surface is decorated with patterns developed from algorithms. The studio created a 3D model of the design before sending it to a 3D ColorJet printer, which adds the hues during th..

7 Things Interior Designers Really Wish You Wouldn't Buy (You've Got at Least One)

One of the most satisfying parts of buying a home is filling it with brand-new furniture. But before you plunk down your credit card on that red leather couch or Eames-knockoff coffee table, listen up: Interior designers would like to sit you down and share some items they really, really wish you wouldn't get. Why? Because these professionals see, client after client, home after home, what works and what doesn't. And, rather than silently cringe at seeing yet another horribly furnished space, they want to clear the air by revealing certain furnishings they absolutely hate—and explain why you'll end up regretting them, too. We're focusing first on the living room, the site of many traditional furniture-buying blunders. Behold seven purchases to avoid if you know what's good for you. Related Articles1.

In memoriam — Former colleagues mourn death of art professor

Stephanie PITTSBURG — Marjorie Schick taught for half a century as college professor at Pittsburg State University. Her art — body sculptures and large-scaled jewelry made of wood and papier-mâché — is known internationally. Schick’s style was considered “bold and aggressive. Pioneering. Loud. Oversized,” according to a release. She retired from the university in the spring and this fall was in Porter Hall boxing up her work from over the years. Schick died Sunday, Dec. 17, 2017, after a short illness. Her colleagues expressed their love and respect for Schick. “Nothing I can say will actually encompass the amount of love and respect that we as a Department hold for Marjorie and her work,” Department of Art Interim Chair James Oliver said in a release. “Her teaching modeled her art-making process, leading by example and consistently innovating.” Department of Art Associate Professor Rhona Shand agreed, Schick’s artwork was innovative “she was the re..

Westin Bonaventure architect John Portman, who aimed to soothe the anxiety of the postwar...

John C. Portman, the architect and developer who sought to remake the ailing American downtown during the 1960s and ’70s in his own larger-than-life image, designing glass-skinned office towers and hotels with soaring atriums like the one in the Westin Bonaventure hotel in Los Angeles, died Friday in Atlanta. He was 93. His firm, John Portman & Associates, announced the death in a statement on its website. No cause was given. Beginning with the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, completed in 1967, Portman brought a new level of drama to hotel architecture. In place of lobbies leading predictably past a check-in desk to a bank of elevators, Portman carved out giant central atriums that included elaborate water features, stacked balconies and restaurants on several levels. The result was a hotel that aspired to be a city within a city — that provided what the Hyatt billed as “indoor sightseeing.” As much as that two-word phrase promised the specific pyrotechnics of Portman’s novel style — which N..

Simon Pearce Has Your Instant Winter Wonderland at the Ready

Vermont has no shortage of natural wonders. Its landscape is bedecked with coniferous forests; the evergreen is a hardy and loyal compatriot of the place. Artist and master glassblower Simon Pearce was inspired by those pristine and familiar surrounds when creating the Enchanted Forest, a classic 20-piece collection that looks both nostalgic and modern—a serious feat for holiday decoration. Handmade in Vermont, a close look at the Enchanted Forest showcases the skill of each glassblower. Photo: Courtesy Simon Pearce Comprised of individual trees, the collection has been a Simon Pearce tradition for years, owing much to its craftsmanship and technique. Trained in Ireland, Pearce established his studio in the early 1980s, taking up space in a former woolen mill in Quechee, VT, today an emerging ski destination. Lauded for his crystalline stemware, lighting, tabletop and decoration, Pearce is also revered for his clean, unfussy aesthetic, a boon for the quietly decorative among us. Eac..
